Can any of you think of songs where the title is not included in the actual lyrics (excluding instrumentals!).

Been racking my brains and can only come up with Bohemian Rapsody.

There must be loads of 'em and its driving me nuts.

Couple that spring to mind:-

Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood

Simon and Garfunkel - Bookends

Wyclef Jean - Perfect Gentlemen

Adamski featuring Seal - Killer

Plenty more I am sure

Harry Dean Stanton - Pop Will Eat Itself, doesn't feature him, isn't about him, has no connection to him other than they were going to use a sample of him in the track but changed their minds but liked the title so much they kept it.

A lot of PWEI track titles don't entirely feature in the song but that's the best of them.

Supper's ready does contain the line "your supper's waiting for you" so by inference Supper's ready?

Had to chuck that in.......

It also contains the line hand in hand, gland in gland, which I've never really understood.

gwynne61:Sounds dodgy, we could get started on Jon Anderson's lyrics for yes, but that would be very silly .

Stop it right there. You leave John alone, his lyrics are fine.

The prosecution rests my honour, a selection of the accused oblique (?) lyrics........
Tales from Topographic OceansCraving penetrations offer links with the self instructor's sharp
and tender love as we took to the air, a picture of distance.
Dawn of our power we amuse redescending as fast as misused
Expression, as only to teach love as to reveal passion chasing
Late into corners, and we danced from the ocean.
Dawn of love sent within us colours of awakening among the many
Won't to follow, only tunes of a different age, as the links span
Our endless caresses for the freedom of life everlasting
